4.0 out of 5 stars Rock'n'roll comes to Discworld, 7 Jun 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Soul Music: (Discworld Novel 16) (Discworld Novels) (Paperback)
It had to happen some time. We'd already talked about movies (Moving Pictures) and gods (Small Gods), so it only could be matter of time before Pratchett dealt with that other passtime, music. And he does it very well too. But I thought this book didn't actually concentrate on music that much and spent more time dealing with Death's disappearance. The introduction of Susan, Death's grand-daughter, by adoption, is a brilliant idea, and having her take over the business is a genius touch. The bits which are about music are well written and funny, but it all draws itself to a rather disappointing end. Not one of his best, but still very good nonethless. (P.S., for all those who have read it, did you realise that Llamedos, where the lead singer comes from, is not a Welsh name, but sod-em-all written backwards?)

Yes, I did know that. And it's funny.

Yes, I did, because a neighbour had a house called that long before Soul Music was published!
I loved the bit at the end of the novel which puns on Kirsty McCall's 'There's a Guy works down the chip shop thinks he's Elvis'!
